Perhaps it was meant that it couldn't be accessed while QB was open?August 3 2005 at 5:07 AM

Response to *In QBASIC, ending the program always closes all files. But still, use CLOSE.
It makes sense. If QB is using a file that was OPENed but not CLOSEd, other applications can't access it. This does however make it hard to test programs that output to a file, so CLOSE should always be used. IMHO, this is the point the "I/O Police" had in mind.
